Third Generation

18. ?Tabitha Ann MCBEE1 was born about 1776 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.1

Married Thomas Huddleston 25 Apr 1801 in Grainger Co TN. Samuel McBee, Bondsman. [probably her brother]
it is possible that Tabitha does not belong here in this family - she could be part of the family of Obadiah McBee who was also living in Granger Co at this time.

A Thomas Huddleston was in McNairy Co TN 1830 & 1840 census. He was age 50-60 in 1830, 60-70 in 1840. Not there in 1850. His spouse was younger - age 40-50 in 1830, a male child was 5-10 with no young females in the household. And his spouse was 50-60 in 1840; no other persons.

It is suggested that Tabitha and Thomas had a daughter Nancy, b. about 1802, a daughter Catherine, b. 1816, and a son, b. about 1823. That's certainly a lot of years between children.
It is also been said that she is the Tabitha Huddleston, found in a Miller Co, MO Census in 1850, but I'm not completely convinced. She is a bit too young by about 15 years to be a daughter of William & Abigail, and said to be born in Indiana. This is the household, 527.
Josiah Birdsong, 52, b. TN. Nancy, 48, b. TN
Benjamin 26, Malinda 22, William 21, Calvin 17, and Loucinda 14, - all born in TN. Evaline 12, Josiah 10, Mary 7, John 5, and Nancy age 1, - b. in Missouri
Tabitha Huddleston, age 70, b. Indiana

There is this - in 1840, also in McNairy County, there was a John Birdsong, age 40-50; his spouse age 30-40, one male child 5-10, 1 f under 5, 3f 5-10, 2f 15-20. This man was not in McNairy Co TN in 1850.

William & Abigail's son James is said to have had a daughter named Tabitha. She would be more likely to have been the age of the Tabitha Huddleston in Missouri, but again, she was not born in Indiana. And that Tabitha married Jeremiah Maxey, son of Josiah Maxey & Martha Arthur, 26 Mar 1818 in Henry Co GA.

?Tabitha Ann MCBEE and Thomas HUDDLESTON were married on 24 April 1801 in Granger County, Tennessee. Thomas HUDDLESTON was born circa 1780 in Halifax County, Virginia.
